Hey darlings! First things first, what did you notice when you opened up my blog? New layout, new theme right? In the world of blogging, you have to keep re-branding yourself one way or the other so I got a responsive blog theme. I love my blog so much more now and I can't thank the hubby enough because he bought the theme and set it up all by himself. Happy wife! Hehehehehe.
Hey my lovelies! You know what time it is. Tutorial time! So I have been playing around with ankara fabrics more than ever recently and I decided to start ankara inspired makeup tutorials. As you know these fabrics are often very colourful and to be honest I love the idea of creating wearable looks inspired by them. Oh and guess what? All the products I used in this video are less than 2,000 naira each. Yup yup! You guys know I always deal in affordable products but an entire face with products that cost that low is almost a steal.
I've been anticipating this post for ages. Been looking forward to showing y'all my dark side. Lol, indeed! The story behind this dress is long but I'll try to summarize it. My dad actually bought this dress for my mum. Yes! My mum! Can you beat that? He walked into a store in South Korea, saw this fitted dress with a large skull and probably thought 'Hmm, this will look good on my wife'. Lol. Trust my mum to do away with the dress once she saw it (hands up if you know typical Nigerian mums). I was the secondary recipient and I love it. I have worn it so many times but this is the first debut on the blog (round of applause).
One thing I haven't really done is merging two different colours and patterns of ankara into one outfit. So I decided to step out of my comfort zone a bit and see how it turns out. I'm pleasantly surprised that it looks this good. I can't emphasize enough about how fashion should be fun. Play with it!
Hey guys! Today's video is something that is always highly requested. 'How do you keep your skin looking good'? 'What products do you use'? 'You skin always looks blemish-free, what's the secret'? are few of the many skin care questions I get all the time. I remember I did a post way back on my skincare routine here and to be honest some of the products I use are still very much the same, just a few changes here and there.
Hey guys, how you doing (in Wendy William's voice). Lol. Time for another fashion/style post and I'm still exploring my vintage side in another outfit from The Naija Thrift Store. Read my full review on the brand here. This shirt is giving me serious old skool vibes though. The fit, colour, pattern and buttons all scream 1980's chic.
You know what? Somebody should give me the award for being the best advocate for Naija brands. Are you kidding me? It gives me so much joy to create awareness for upcoming brands in our country especially during these incredibly tough times. A lot of us don't have the luxury of shopping on international sites anymore so I believe this will be very beneficial. Don't forget this blog is all about affordable fashion and beauty so this is right up my alley.
Oh yeah,oh yeah! Still rolling out Valentine's Day inspired posts and I decided to do a makeup tutorial that you can rock on that day. Trust me this makeup look is super easy and I'm sure beginners would love it. The eyes are so simple and I decided to do an ombre red lip to pull the entire look together. I hope you enjoy and don't forget to like, share and SUBSCRIBE!!! Scroll down for the video and make sure you watch in HD for the best experience.
